{June 25, 2013}   One Minute Carnival Haiku

Today , I have combined the  One Minute Post Prompt with  Haiku Day  on the WordCount Blogathon and done a Carnival Haiku!  

I don’t know why that first part was underlined or how to undo…so just overlook that little annoying detail and enjoy my haiku below! 🙂

Today’s Writing Prompt: Carnival
Posted: 25 Jun 2013 03:30 AM PDT
Remember those carnivals you went to as a kid, or maybe you went on a date to one?! Did you win a big prize, or lose lots of hard earned money trying? Did you see something crazy?

wcToday is Haiku Day, one of the most popular days of the WordCount Blogathon, where everyone in the month-long blogging challenge is encouraged to write a haiku. In case you’re not familiar with it, a haiku is a Japanese poem form that consists of three lines with a total of 17 syllables: 5 syllables in the first line, 7 in the second, and 5 in the third. — Michelle

Watch my money go

(I have always been addicted to this darn coin game where you shoot the coins in and try to knock off the cheap prizes!)

That first haiku was about a good memory….but I decided to do a second on a bad memory.

Carnival of Cheats

(This was based on seeing my boyfriend with another girl at the fair ON my 16th Birthday and being dumped.)

Worth the trouble

“He couldn’t see why people made such a fuss about people eating their silly old fruit anyway, but life would be a lot less fun if they didn’t. And there was never an apple, in Adam’s opinion, that wasn’t worth the trouble you got into for eating it.” ~from Good Omens
